Happy National Donut Day!


Today is National Donut (Doughnut) Day !  Most days after morning chores are complete it is time for coffee time.  Coffee time usually consists of one of the following:  cookies, bars, muffins, fruit, crackers/cheese, and sometimes the special treat of donuts.  Most of the time the donuts come from town; however, when Emily is home she treats us to homemade donuts.  It was a 4-H goal to make them for county fair.  ( A nutrition/price comparison food & nutrition exhibit is a good learning experience.)  Emily received donut pans for Christmas one year and a little donut maker.  Well, needless to say, it is one project that never made it to county fair.  So – now I hope I have provided someone with inspiration for a 4-H project for this county fair season that is quickly approaching!  (Oh, how I remember those days as both a 4-H’er and a parent!)


2 1/4 cups cake flour                     2/3 cup sugar

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Spray doughnut pan with nonstick baking spray; set aside.
  2. In large mixing bowl sift together flour, sugar, baking powder, nutmeg, cinnamon, and salt; set aside. In small bowl, combine buttermilk, eggs, and butter. Add buttermilk mixture to dry mixture; stir until just combined.
  3. Fill each doughnut indentation with batter, each one about 2/3 full. Bake doughnuts for 8 to 9 minutes or until doughnuts spring back when lightly touched. Remove from oven, and let stand 5 minutes before frosting or tossing in sugar or cinnamon and sugar.
